Beginning a job search can be intimidating and time-consuming. Scrolling through various job posts on different platforms and researching on the company and role that you are applying to, are different aspects of your job search process that you will have to consider.
However, before embarking on your job search process, the first step to take is to ensure that your CV has been updated with your latest job experience. According to the Wall Street Journal, over 90% of large companies use and depend on applicant tracking systems (ATS) to determine if an applicant is a fit for the role. These ATS look out for specific keywords and will filter your CV accordingly. Moreover, once you get past the ATS, your CV then acts as the first touch point you will have with any recruiters or hiring managers. Therefore, it is critical to ensure that your CV serves as the best possible representation of yourself.
Hence, it comes as no surprise that you should spend some time polishing your CV. However, there are many tips out there on how to write a good CV. With so many diversifying information, it can get confusing on which ones to adopt and which ones to ignore. Often, the information does not take into consideration on what information hiring managers or recruiters keep an eye out for, and instead focuses on how a CV should be designed. To address this concern, the team at JAC Recruitment has created a short video that contains some of the top tips that our clients have shared with us.
Please take a look and we are certain that it will be of great help for you during your job search process. Moreover, if you any any further questions regarding your job search, please feel free to contact us and a JAC recruitment consultant will be more than happy to get in touch.
